I think it was to harsh myself. Accidents happen all the time. Bikes shouldn't be ridden on roads where the speed limit is 55 period. Impaired or not that is just a dangerous situation. Even if bikers can go 20 mph... it is like some standing still and getting hit at 35 mph by a car.
Bikers should stay in the bike lane and never be allowed on roads where cars go 55.
